justices have to agree to take up a case. pete williams joining us live now by telephone from inside the supreme court building. pete, first of all, what what are the separate issues here that the justices could be taking a look at? >> well, there are two and it seems the most likely if the court will take any of these cases is a challenge to a federal law called the defense of marriage act passed by congress in 1996, signed by president clinton. and it says if a couple a legally married under state law, one of the nine states that now or soon will grant the right for same-sex couples to get married, those marriages are not recognized under federal law and as a practical matter, that deprives those couples of about 1,000 federal benefits. that law has been challenged by lawsuits in several states. if seems pretty likely the court will take that case because it'sen validating an act of congress. so it seems pretty likely that the court will take that or we could find that out this afternoon. now, the other big thing we're watching is the challenge to california's proposition 8, the vo
. más a usted... cinco centímetros. keach: archaeologist william sanders has been leading excavations in the copan valley since 1980. sanders: we decided to do a series of large-scale excavations out in the countryside to get an idea what the farming population was like. what kind of houses did they live in ? what was their lifestyle like ? probably 80% of the population of copan was in that social category. keach: unlike ceren, the ancient houses of copan had been exposed to centuries of erosion. very few artifacts remained intact or in their original location. still the team finds significant clues. in one structure, the team discovers a razed platform of stone, the remnants of a sleeping bench. in another, they find evidence for a kitchen -- shattered obsidian blades that once were knives and broken pieces of pottery that were once used for cooking. the layout of ancient maya houses is quite different from our own. the maya constructed separate buildings for sleeping, cooking and storing food. they organized these buildings around patios. after two seasons of work up here, what can
high-profile cases that would help define the rights and benefits of same-sex couples. pete williams is the justice correspondent. he joins me from outside the supreme court. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning, chris. we're wait to go hear whether the court will take either of these two cases. the defense of marriage act passed in 1996 by congress, signed into law by president clinton. and what it says is that for federal law purposes, marriage can exist only between a man and a woman. so that means this in the nine states where same sex marriage is legal, if a same sex couple gets married there, they're considered mayrried for state lw but not federal law and the practical consequence is they are denied about 1,000 federal benefits, tax benefits, survivors benefits, to be covered under health insurance. that sort of thing. it will have to decide whether that law is unconstitutional discrimination, denying those couples equal treatment. what the advocates of overturning it say is never before has the federal government done anything but defer to a state's definition of wha
. joining me now is chris geidner. the man who knows the supreme court inside and out, pete williams. pete, good to have you with us. break it down. which cases are we talking about, and how quickly might we find out whether they will move forward? >> reporter: well, if they're going to take any of these cases, thomas, it's very likely we'll find out this afternoon. and i think the most likely event here is that they will grant one of the cases that challenges the federal defense of marriage act. passed in 1966 by congress signed by president clinton, it defines marriage as for federal law purposes as only the legal union of one man and one woman. now, the practical effect of that is that in the nine states that now grant or soon will grant same-sex couples the legal right to get married, those couples are legally married under state law, but the federal government doesn't recognize their marriage, which means that they can't get survivors' benefits, they don't get tax benefits, they don't get social security benefits. about 1,000 benefits in all that are the result of this federal law tha

to cecily williams if you can remember him. back there that with religions you have the necessity of doctrines, and myths, and these elements, and dimensions that we've looked at, but you have to care about human beings. i think that's what you are hitting on here you have to take care of those basic human needs and have compassion for people because that's the instinct in religion, how often we don't see it-- >> she is also pointing out that it is inter-faith-- we have an inter-faith council-- it does pass. which is the church of the future maybe? >> some how as dr. moore say's we've got to break that down. yes, ron. >> pin, when you got pinned here-- [laughter] >> i really had a quite an experience with all the faiths being out there and i'm sure most of our sophisticated class here has run into the story about the seven blind men and the elephant. and the elephant. each one was right as far as they went, but they were wrong six other ways. but they described an elephant to their best. and so the truth was greater than any thing that any individual had. >> and that's a sense of

that could ultimately define marriage under federal law. william la jeunesse following this story out of los angeles now. william, what's happening today? good morning. >> reporter: well is the federal law that defines marriage as a union of a man and woman constitutional? the nine justices today will decide if they want to take that case up this spring. now there are 10 pending cases involving gay rights before the court. eight involve challenges to the defense of marriage act known as doma. it bars the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages, and, it says one state does not have to recognize the same-sex marriage of another state. it was signed into law in 1996 but then president clinton, it was passed by large majorities in both houses including large margins of democrats. president obama was before the law before he was against it. but now the administration is pushing the supreme court bill to overturn doma as well. already two lower courts said the clause that bars same sex spouses from receiving federal benefits like social security, survivor benefits, insurance, violat
